It has been a very quiet weekend as it rained most of the time and we really haven't done anything. We have some news to share about Franklin's mom though. She came home late Saturday after the doctors decided that given her age there really wasn't anything they could do except to keep her pain free. She has a crumbling spine and has already had 11 operations and to try and fix it. Mom hasn't been able to go and visit yet as 'she who is never seen- dad's hooman daughter" has some sort of virus causing bronchitis and mom doesn't want to risk Franklin's mom getting that and it putting her back in hospital. We did see Franklin Saturday morning although he was more then a little tipsy. Franklin suffers so badly when it thunders that he has to have a tranquilizer otherwise he hyperventilates and trembles from butt to nose. Saturday morning we had a really bad storm so Bonnies daughter gave him one of his 'wobbly' pills. He is so funny to watch as he staggers around looking for all the world as if he had just come out of pub. It does help him though and that is the main thing.
